  1. Classic Filipino style right there. Luscious!

  2. So glad to see Lois back in the fray and lettering with Tom.

    And yes, oh yes… some wonderful art.

  3. Patrick Dean says:

    I love Alex Nino’s artwork.

  4. Alex Nino is so awesome. This looks great. Something to look forward to!

  5. From the cover, it looks like it’s called “Dead Ahead.”

  6. This looks awesome. Moose is such an underrated colorist…

  7. Wow! I can’t wait for this one! :D

  8. The cover looks great! I wish it would be available in the Philippines soon.

  9. i am such a huge fan of alex nino, i don’t know what i’m gonna do with myself till september!!!

  10. Can’t wait to but it! Alex Nino is the man!

  11. Can’t wait to but it! Alex Nino is the man!

  12. Can’t wait to but it! Alex Nino is the man!

  13. Nino looks absolutely amazing on this, and Moose is keeping the colors suitably queasy. Lois is the letterer on it, though. I’m advising but she’s the one running riot.

  14. Yahooooo! Another Alex Niño works to get a hold on to. Proud to be PINOY!

  15. Nino’s got such a great style! Manuel Auad is also putting out a book on Alex Nino, The Art of Alex Nino, due this August. He’s hoping to have an advance copy at Comic-Con.

  16. Beautiful work as always, Nino never disappoints! His Satan’s Tears book is one of the most inspiring art books ever published. Looking forward to the next collected works.

  17. “This looks awesome. Moose is such an underrated colorist…”

    Who’s underrating him? I want to talk to them. I think the colors look fantastic. Give that man a hug.

  19. Oh man. I haven’t been this excited about an upcoming book for quite a while.

  20. Nino is always one of my favorite. Fantastic!

  21. I was on the fence with this mini waiting to see what the art looked like.

    Easily pre-ordered now.

    Alex and I are very thankful everyone is enjoying the teasers for the comic but I wanted to mention Alex has an uber cool t shirt coming out in September as well from Graphitti Design that will be to die for (no pun intended)
